AOV window actuator is a means of automatically opening a window and the most common types are chain actuators, folding arm actuators or linear / spindle actuators. Chain actuators (chain drives) are ideal for turning top, bottom and side hung windows into auto-opening vents (AOVs) for daily ventilation and smoke control.

Folding arm actuators are ideal for smoke control systems by enabling wide opening angles for rooflights or heavier windows. Whereas linear / spindle actuators are ideal for opening and closing the likes of top-hung outward windows, skylights, solar shading blades, domes and more.

We offer a full range of actuators for both daily ventilation and smoke control in our online shop.
